Something simple ...

Good day to one and all - my wedding anniversary, and also the last day to enter my candy.

I have made a card that is fairly simple.

My base card is Ivory Gold Dust Shimmer card, which even if it does not show well in the photos, works really well with what I have done.  I printed a sheet of paper in lovely autumnal colours from the Essence of Nature CD - I am so loving this.  I have layered a strip over a piece of card, and edged the join with some Copper Stickles.  I have made a flower with some new flower and leaf dies I got from here.    I finished with a sentiment, which is from Stampin' Up.







I am entering this for the following challenges -
